Kara's 16 Hour Masculine + Mid-Century Living Room

Exposed red bricks in a loft? Check. Big screen TV with tons of comfortable seating? Check. Now if this isn't a living room a single bachelor wouldn't dream of kicking back after a hard day's work, we don't know what is...and it was done on a budget - a time budget, that is.

Kara could have fooled us if she hadn't told us the space was a mad 16-hour design exercise to ultimately be used as a movie set piece, but there are plenty of clever elements here that conveys that clean look many of us mid-century modern minimalists (try to say that three-times fast) are always looking to achieve in our more permanent interiors.

"This space needed to feel expensive, masculine, and modern. Using materials like steel and stained wood helped to achieve this. Of course the existing exposed brick and concrete floors fit the theme and really helped as well!"

Using accessories from Anthropologie and combining it with the classic curves of the Eames Lounge Chair and other mid-century pieces, you really get that simultaneous rustic-sleek look and feel. Finally, throw in revamped set of drawers and some DIY art and voila! You now have the perfect balance of minimal, man, and modern... even if it was just temporary for the time being.
